French Open 2012

Novak Djokovic

In his first trip to the French Open final, Djokovic struggled to get momentum going as rain caused several delays in the action. After losing the first two sets to Nadal, the two were sent back to the locker room for a half hour break for the rain to clear. Djokovic began mounting a comeback when play resumed, but the rain picked up again and the final was pushed to a Monday finish. Nadal came out firing and Djokovic fell short complete the "Novak Slam" -- holding all four Grand Slam titles, a feat last accomplished by Rod Laver in 1969.
